Autopoesis 2

The images below are from my second annual show Autopoiesis 2 at the Lanespliter in July of 2007. In the month of May I composed ten paintings (acrylic on canvas or cedar) ranging from 6"x6" to 5'x5'.

My Pager's in my Other Pants

The title for this painting came from a mixed tape made for me by friend and writer Lukas Champagne.

These paintings are from the series Marriage
